Bangor police officer lassos race horse

BANGOR (AP) -- A Bangor police officer with a makeshift lasso is credited with nabbing a race horse that escaped from its stall at the Hollywood Casino Racetrack.

Officer Kris Bech received a call that there was a horse on the loose in the area of Hammond Street at around 1 a.m. Wednesday.

Officer Jose Vidaurri made a lasso out a piece of rope from his cruiser and placed it around the horse's neck after officers cornered it in a driveway.

The horse didn't seem too disturbed by the events that transpired after escaping from its stall at Hollywood Casino Racetrack.

The horse munched grass while waiting for Hollywood Casino racetrack workers to take it back to its stall.
